What’s a successful person’s greatest resource in difficult times? Good thinking! Good thinkers are always in demand. A person who knows how may always have a job, but the person who knows why will always be his boss.

Put it in writing and keep it somewhere in a favorite place to stimulate your thinking. 2. Expose Yourself to Good Thinkers
